Doostang Success — Paid Internship for a Premier Investment Consulting Firm


Boston University, 2009
Investment Consulting Associate – KLD Research & Analytics

“Years ago, after reading about successful fund managers including Ben Graham, Martin Whitman, and Bill Miller, I decided to pursue a career in the investment business, a very difficult field to enter for a student from a non-target school.  I had a strong interest in the capital markets and followed both domestic and international stocks.  One of my older peers in the Finance Club at Boston University had recommended Doostang as a great tool for students and graduates to find employment opportunities in the greater Boston area.

After signing up for the service, I was able to explore Principal Investing internships offered in Boston and New York, focusing on equities, fixed income, commodities, derivatives, and the private markets.  I was very interested in institutional investing as opposed to retail, so I applied to a handful of opportunities in that space after the first week of signing up.

Almost immediately, I received notifications from Doostang that my resume was being downloaded and viewed.  I was also contacted by a number of employers for first round interviews.

I was very satisfied with the Doostang service, as I was receiving much more attention than at my university career center.  I also enjoyed the fact that I would find out immediately that my resume was being viewed.  This gave me the courage to follow up directly with the HR departments that viewed my credentials.

After about three weeks, I was able to find a paid internship through Doostang for KLD Research & Analytics, a premier investment consulting firm serving pensions and endowments.

During my first week at the firm, I was working with the Dimensional Fund Advisors and CalPERs on to provide them with customized emerging market investment research on listing requirements and exchange trends.

Doostang is an excellent service!”

Doostang Success — Taking the Pain Out of Job Search

Boston University, 2007
Analyst – HighPoint Solutions

“After the financial collapse, I turned to Doostang in late 2009 on the advice of a friend.  In a tough economy and an even tighter job market it isn’t easy to part with any amount of money, but I feel the money I invested in monthly subscriptions to Doostang was far and away the best money I’ve spent in quite some time.

I only wish I turned to Doostang sooner in my search.  At first I was hesitant to pay for job listings so I networked like crazy, used free job sites and job boards, and applied directly to companies.  Having little luck there I decided to give Doostang a shot and added it to my job search strategy.

Though I put in countless hours and months of work into networking and applying through company websites, I received my job offer through Doostang.
I applied on a Saturday, had a phone interview on Tuesday, and got the job offer the following week.

What Doostang does very well is it takes a lot of the pain out of the job search by completely eliminating trash ads, pop-ups, and phony jobs that a lot of the other free sites have.  It also does a great job at aggregating high quality positions through its filter, so when you search for ‘Analyst’ ‘Boston’ you’re only seeing legitimate, quality job matches.

Applying to jobs is never fun, but Doostang definitely takes a lot of the pain out of it.  I also found that the quality and quantity of jobs on Doostang kept motivating me to keep applying because I would see new listings for analyst positions and I would say to myself ‘there are still a lot of really good jobs out there’. The key to any job search is persistence, and while that has to come from the individual, Doostang certainly makes the search easier.”
